Working from Home Tips

As many of you know - I have worked a full-time job - remote for years.

Here are my tips on how to stay sane and maintain a work life balance.  I can't say I always success at all of this - but it is what I strive for!

1)  Get up each day and do YOUR morning routine.  If you just hang out in your PJs all day - its easy to start to feel depressed.

Make a list of what you did before, and make sure you keep doing them.  Now is the time to add good habits, and break bad ones.  Eat a healthy breakfast, shower, get dressed, work out, floss, meditate, pray etc....
2)  Have a "spot" that is your "office".  When you are there you are working.

This will also help define a difference between working and not working.  This can be 2 different chairs or 2 different rooms anything.
3)  Done forget to eat/don't overeat/drink.  I've honestly had both issues.

Its easy to get absorbed into your "job" and forget to come up for air - take a break and eat meals.  

Thursday Night Yoga Classes - Moving OnLine

I really can't believe how just a few short weeks can change everything!

My Yoga Classes will be moving to online.  Both the Seated Chair Class and the Yoga Flow Class.

I will be developing classes and recording/posting them for your Yoga use whenever you need a moment for you.

If you want to join my online community - please reach out and let me know - I'm still figuring out pricing.

Those that were signed up for my classes - we will be have a Thursday night "checkin session".

We will not be doing yoga, but will touch base about how we are doing, ask questions about the on-line classes and any special requests.

So far I only have my 15 minute morning yoga recording available, but plan to have many more by the end of the weekend.  My goal is at least 2-3 more 15 min routines for Chair and Flow yoga each and at least 1 full hour long class.

Keep Safe Everyon…

Gift for my 21 year old!

I made this plaque as a gift for my son to hold his Christmans bottle opener!  The image is his "SKIWISE" app image.  Check out his app HERE on the app store!

Also - my husband had an arborist come out to trim one of our trees on Friday that had branches getting to close to our house - more materials for my stick furniture!

Carving Tools Roll Up Pouch

I got some new tools for Christmas so I needed a special bag to hold them all.  Today I made a Carving Tool Roll Up Pouch similar to ones you can buy - but mine is one of a kind!

I also made dog leash holder - still needs some poly!

The Yoga Adventure Continues!

Wow - can you believe its already the end of Jan!  I've been subbing the Thursday night Seated Chair and the Yoga Flow classes since November.  It's not too late to join us for the rest of the Jan/Feb Session and then continue on with me for the March/April session.  Yes - I'm going to keep going.   We have a great group of yogis each week, but we are happy to add some more.

Both classes provide options and opportunities as well as challenge.  Come, move and breath with us!

Info about my class and others are posted on the BodyMindCircle website

Be sure to call/text the teacher you will be there so we can expect you!

Started my First Real Quilt Project

I usually wait until I finish a project to post about it - but this one will take me awhile - so - I'll post some updates once in awhile!

I've been toying with doing a quilt for my bed for awhile - but never got excited about a style or pattern until I finally ran across THIS for inspiration in Pinterest.

For the record, I have only ever made a "sampler" quilt when my daughter was a baby.  She is now 25, and the quilt wasn't very big. I ended up purchasing the 6 Point Star Quilt block pattern from "Kits by Carla" after watching her video on YouTube.

I decided to make the 12" size - and a few items of note if you also get the pattern and want to do the 12" size:
You only need the same qty of strips as the other sizes (not 4 only 2) you will see what I meanYou need 3 1/2" strips - don't only cut 2" or your are in trouble...been there, done that :( I made one set of eight - 6 Point Star Blocks...and thought - wow - I now have the m…

About my Logo

I decided that since I have a website to talk about all my creative pursuits - I wanted a Logo (and a "Favicon") to go along with it.

I used my calligraphy skills to make a symbol that is a "take" on the White Trillium flower (see the "C" for Create and the "S" for Stretch. (the "C" portion of the Logo is my "Fabicon" - PS what you see when you click to go to the URL of my site.
My Son Spencer Pauly turned my drawing into the real thing for my Christmas Gift this year - Thanks Spencer!
